§ 17. Mr. WATERSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade if any scheme 1772 has been formulated to ameliorate the difficulties as to the allocation and distribution of household coal, and whether there is any possibility of re-allocation of supplies where at present they are inadequate to meet the required needs of the people?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
A scheme is in force for the supply and distribution of household coal, and in any cases where deliveries are temporarily delayed for any reason, steps are taken to send forward emergency supplies.
